OTTAWA, July 22, 2011 — Lumenera Corp. has released the Infinity2-5, a digital CCD USB 2.0 scientific camera engineered for qualitative image archiving in life sciences, clinical and materials sciences applications that require high resolution and sensitivity. The 5-megapixel camera employs the Sony Super HAD ICX655 ?-in. sensor featuring 3.45-μm square pixels. An 8-bit output is available for capturing fast video of live events, or a 14-bit for quantifying data. The high-speed output combined with a high dynamic range results in a versatile entry-level research microscopy camera. Features include good color reproduction in clinical-stained samples for high-quality images; full color subwindowing for rapid focus and scanning of samples; 8.5 fps at full 2448 × 2048-pixel resolution (up to 23 fps at 640 × 480 with region of interest); and a progressive-scan global electronic shutter for producing smooth, even previews with quick response times. The camera is available in either color or monochrome and includes both proprietary Infinity Analyze and Capture software to provide advanced image capture, measurement and processing.
